HUGE SLICES!!!

We were in the area and were trying to figure out where everyone was getting their pizza from, as they all were walking around with these huge slices of cheese pizza. So of course we had to try it out for ourselves! Pizza was good! The right ratio of sauce, dough and cheese.

Lorenzo has simply one of the best street pizzas you will ever have. That is the only thing they do here, and they do it right. The pizza dough, tomato sauce and cheese ratio is just the right one (if you looove cheese), the slice is huge though, you will hardly need more than one and its fairly priced (cash... More

This pizza is so good!!! The slices are HUGE!! They sell only cheese pizza (certain days they have toppings), but for $3.50 a slice, it is totally worth it! Quick snack to stave off the hunger pangs. I'm looking forward to going to Philly again and getting my slices at Lorenzo's.

For the price, one slice equals 2 normal ones in quantity! Best pie in the area! Every time we crave a slice we go out of our way to come here, even better that there open late!!

Greasy pizza sold by thieves. Early this year I went to Lorenzo's, a grimy little hole in the wall supposedly representative of Philly charm. Yeah... the kind of Philly where you get knifed in the back for your pocket change. You'd have better luck fending off the sewer rats on Washington Street as you suck on a used Big Mac... More

this pizza was amazing! one of the best things that we ate while in Philly. We happened upon this pizza place while walking. It was totally worth the 4 bucks that we spent on it plus some! I would love to go back.,

Several years ago upon my arrival in Philly from TX, family and I discovered Lorenzo's walking around Little Italy. It is now a tradition that we head there when I get off the plane for food. BIG fan of their pizza which all I personally have had although family members have had chicken strips, fries and cheese steaks...all delicious. I... More

Hubby stopped by this place because he was drawn in by the smell. I must admit it did smell pretty good from the outside. Anyway the slice is $3.50 but so worth it. We are a family of 4 and we share 1 slice to hold us down until we finish shopping. The slice is so big and worth the... More
